Blake Leeper is one of the younger members of Team USA and began competing internationally less than three years ago. The level of competition was a revelation to him. Leeper talks about the intense level of competition in Paralympic sports and how he stacks up against two of the biggest names in racing, South Africa’s Oscar Pistorius and America’s Jerome Singleton.
